President Signs National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014

On December 26, 2013, President Barack Obama signed the “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014” (H.R. 3304), which authorizes $632.8 billion in defense expenditures. The legislation authorizes the following:

Although the defense authorization designates mandatory cost reductions for various defense programs, the authorization largely falls in line with the Pentagon’s requested budget for its activities. However, the defense authorization exceeds the spending levels set by the recently signed budget legislation by more than $30 billion. Among other measures, the defense authorization also grants funding to the Department of Defense Inspector General’s Office for fraud, waste, and abuse oversight; requires a 1 percent pay increase for military personnel; and imposes several new reforms aimed at remedying sexual assault in the military. The act also establishes a $625,000 cap on contractor executive compensation, which conflicts with the $487,000 cap set by the Bipartisan Budget Act.
